We hope to return to the stage this Fall with our regional premiere production of Sharyn Rothstein’s A Good Farmer.
A Good Farmer is scheduled to run from Friday, September 11 — October 3, 2020
A moving drama, laced with humor and heartache, A Good Farmer is the story of two women—a farm owner and her unlikely best friend, an illegal Mexican immigrant — fighting to survive in a small town divided by America’s immigration battle. This is a play about love, friendship and finding the power to face what divides us.
“…outstanding…brings the much-needed sense of humanity to the issue of immigration and addresses many of the moral questions we face…This is an important piece of theatre…[a] gem of a show…”
“…more timely than ever…emotionally powerful…”
“Sharyn Rothstein has artfully managed to reveal the humanity behind some of today’s contentious political issues.”

The Areas Hottest Off-Broadway Theatre
The Waterfront South Theatre, located just a block south of Broadway and Ferry Avenues in the Waterfront South neighborhood of Camden, is the first theatre built in Camden, New Jersey in more than 100 years. This gorgeous state-of-the-art theater was designed to be reminiscent of Walt’s Cafe, the corner bar, that once stood on this corner up until 1967. Thanks to the Heart of Camden, The Domenica Foundation, Ignarri Loomis Architects and others, this grand space is home to South Camden Theatre Company.
Today, 96 seats and thousands of theatre patrons a year have replaced the bar stools and shipyard workers that at one time called this corner of Camden “home”.
The Domenica Hall Auditorium accommodates 96 people and is a completely accessible facility.
